Check to see what ports are open on the firewall, accessible from the
outside world, especially SOCKS.
When I used DirecPC, I had to use a Windoze proxy server. I ran into
this until I shut down pretty much everything originating in the
outside world. Sorry I can't be more specific, but after playing with
the firewall settings, it just went away.
P.S. You could also have someone port scan your IP from the outside
world to see what's open.
